Public Record

I always love reading the Police Blotter in our local newspaper. Not because there might be someone I know but because they are often so darn funny. Here are just a few of today's entries.

Public Record Docket
From the public records of the Findlay Police Department and the Hancock County Sheriff's Office:

Police Department

A mother and son in the 600 block of East Lincoln Street argued over the son's late sleeping habits and lack of employment Wednesday evening.

A man was arrested for domestic violence after biting a romantic interest in the hand while the couple drove in the 1700 block of Lima Avenue on Wednesday evening.

A 17-year-old was arrested for theft at the Trenton Avenue BP gas station Wednesday afternoon. The juvenile was nabbed when a clerk noted him leaving the premises with “a bulge about the size of a 20-ounce Mountain Dew” in his pants.

Sheriff's Office

Deputies were called to rural Arlington on Aug. 20 in response to a loose bull.

A Van Buren woman reported receiving threatening phone calls and text messages from an ex-roommate Tuesday. One text message threatened “to round” the woman.

A Findlay woman “had second thoughts” after giving her husband's credit card number to a man over the telephone Tuesday. The man was asking that $110 be sent to India in exchange for $5,000 in federal stimulus money.

Is that a 20 oz Mountain Dew or are you just happy to see me?

Amazing the things that waste the time of law enforcement. I like to check the "society page" to see who got a DUI, beat their wife, got divorce or got caught doing drugs. Always someone I know of.

Are you going to get the Findlay news delivered to your new home in FL or will they have the paper available on line for you to keep up with the laughs??
